View Full Version : STS too close to string

02-11-2010, 02:39 PM
I am installing a Martin STS on 09 Bengal. The problem is the STS is touching the string and I would really like it about 1/16 of an inch from the STS, but it appears in the hole as far as it will go. Any ideas?

Yes, it's an aluminum rod. Take a hacksaw and cut a little off. Then file the rough edge and round the end off just a little. Reinstall and adjust as you like.

if its pushed in as far as it will go and the set screw isn't holding it ??? try pulling it out and grinding it off or file it down...
